Visit Modern Copan

The village of Copan Ruinas offers a perfect vantage point from which to enjoy your time in this area. Copan Ruinas is located just twelve kilometers from Guatemala and is a convenient staging area to visit surrounding Central American countries. With over forty hotels in all price ranges and local restaurants offering a vast range of cuisine, the slow-moving pace of village life is still present here in this adobe and tile roofed town.

The central plaza, filled with tropical plants and flowering trees, a diversity of artisans to discover, a daily fruit and vegetable market, friendly smiles and a unique local cuisine will make your trip to Copan unforgettable. A shaded stone walkway winding by ancient stone monuments offers a mile-long connection to the ruins from the village.
